We have just come back from a fab few days camping at the campsite. It's a really quiet and relaxed place. The dog was super welcome and we felt really chilled out. It's near a main road but is really quiet, no sound at all and is really well placed to explore from.

There's a park for younger kids and a big field that they can play ball in. The shower block was clean and the water hot. The shower cubicles had lots of hooks and places to put stuff. Paper towels etc were replenished all the time and never ran out. The bin was emptied often and the floors cleaned a lot.

The games room needs updating. Air hockey doesn't have any bits to use with it n chalk for pool would be really helpful. However the free WiFi which is brilliant more than made up for no chalk!

The family who run it are really friendly and happy to help. Really relaxed and nice. The children are fab and help out too of they can. My two kids - 12 and 14 had the best time and were gutted to leave!

Great place to stay and will be back asap!

We stayed here for a couple of weeks in August as a family of four in our caravan. This site is very well located for exploring the south and west of Cornwall. The facilities were always clean and well maintained, as was the rest of the site. The free wifi across the whole site was an added bonus especially for the teenagers and the husband! Plenty of space on the pitch - very generous. Electric supply was good and there were conveniently located water/waste points. This site has a lovely feel to it and we would happily return. The owners were very friendly and welcoming and always available. Excellent value.

We have just returned from a lovely August Bank Holiday weekend stay at Retanna Holiday Park. We were pleasantly surprised by how quiet the site was.

We stayed on the Badger Field and had masses of space despite our rather large tent (a Vango Diablo 600XL). It was a very short walk around to the facility block, containing clean toilets and showers, washing up, laundry and freezer facilities.

The free showers were very welcome, though did take a few minutes to come through warm. That could have just been that I was in the shower block so early each morning, due to the joys of camping with a 4 year old depriving me of a lie in.

The site seems to have more static caravans than touring pitches, but if the touring pitches were full the facilities might get a little busy.

The play park was well used by our son, but we were glad to be able to choose when booking not to take a pitch looking on to this. These pitches do have EHU, but the street lighting I would have found intrusive.

All in all a lovely site, that we are likely to return to.

Reviewer: Andy 2013 2 reviews from this member

Great place to come for our first long break in our new tent. I will start by saying the bad points. And there was only one. The tent pitches where on a slope, which was far to uncomfortable. We needed EHU and in view of the play area, so the pitch we were given was not nice to be sleeping on for 10 nights. Lying in bed on a hill didn't make for a good night sleep. However, there where pitches which seemed to be a bit more level. But as for service, facilities and location, it was amazing. The best weather of 2012, quiet, peaceful, and a pleasure to stay at. Highly recommended.

We have stayed at this site many times over the last few years in static vans and in the cottage. Consistently excellent. Quiet, good value for money, good location, very friendly and helpful owners.

It is a quiet site with no club or any other noisiness and despite the road being over the field it is not noticeable.

They have a range of static vans and the camping pitches are either near to the small children's play area (small play area for small children in case that's ambiguous!) or on the top field for peace and quiet.

The toilet/shower/washing up block is modern and well kept.

The cottage is lovely and if we had the cash we'd book it every year. As it is we may well be going back with a tent!

Ideally placed between the lizard, Falmouth and Helston.

The rating of 9 for facilities is for cleanliness etc rather than comprehensiveness as this is a very simple site and I like that. Could only be a 10 overall if it was alongside a beach!

Will be going back!

Retanna is a lovely site between Helston and Falmouth. The site is a small family owned operation and this is very apparent in the high levels of personal service given.

I have camped at this site twice, the pitches are well spaced some have free electrical hookups. The ground is largely flat and very well maintained with large numbers of trees and shrubs.

The toilet block is very new and well equipped. The facilities were always spotlessly clean and the showers hot at any time of day.

In the last year the games room has been relocated to a new building and upgraded to provide WiFi as well as TV, a pool table, air hockey and table football.

There is also a children's playground for the younger kids, this is also very modern and well maintained. I would not hesitate to recommend this site to anyone looking for a small and peaceful location for a couple of family holiday.

We chose this campsite as a base for a two day camping trip exploring Cornwall, for which it was very well located.

The toilet / shower facilities were all exceptionally clean. As was was the games room with a pool table, air hockey table and table football - but you will need some loose change to play on these.

We went on the Saturday at the end of half term week, and possibly due to the timing and the awful week of weather, we were the only two tents on site. There were several people staying in static caravans.

Unfortunately, probably due to the uncharacteristic low temperatures for this time of year, the toilet / shower block was absolutely freezing.

We would stay again, but would pick a week where there was likely to be more campers, as it did feel like a ghost town.

This year was our fourth visit to this site and each being for a two week stay. It is a very well maintained site with the owners being as friendly the day you leave as the day you arrive.

We visit Cornwall for coastal walks and whether it is Lizard area or across to St Ives this site is central and coast to coast is minutes away.

The site is inland, quiet and well worth a visit. If it is a nice beach you are after then they are minutes away or if its a theme park you need then Flambards is 10 minutes drive.

There are no shortage of pubs for a reasonable meal within 5 minutes drive.

Helston town has a good assortment of shops along with there being a Sainsbury's supermarket within a 10 minute drive from the camp site.

Highly recommended

Good points about this site, it is very central when visiting Cornwall so everything is within easy travelling distance. The site is long and thin and the grass is cut regular and is nice and short when pitching your tent.

Although our pitch was on quite a slope but have seen worse. The new loo and shower block is really nice and cleaned every day. The tumble dryer, washing machine, iron that you can higher was great.

The kids really enjoyed the park and the pool table and air hockey that wasn't expensive. Now the not so good points, there is a farm next door so the farm yard noises at different times was a bit loud at times.

Overall a nice park as a base when visiting Cornwall.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on this quiet campsite. Although it is close to the main road the traffic noise wasn't too bad.

The play park is excellent for children and there is plenty of space for them to run around in.

The shower block is nice and clean and the water temperature for showering and dishwashing remains at a decent constant temperature.

The tent pitches are a on a slight slope but not so much as to spoil things.

The family who run it are friendly. They gave us a voucher for Flambards which saved us about 15 on a family ticket. We will return!
